Community Chest: Criteria Review

Since the new grants criteria has been in use, there have been a number of representations made to members of the Committee regarding the eligibility criteria, and in particular, with relation to Parish Councils or Parish Meetings with less than 160 registered electors especially where there are multiple settlements under a single Parish Council/Meeting. 


Consequently some additional changes have been made to refine the criteria further and, if accepted, will take effect from 1 October 2019 when the second half of the Grant Fund is released – as per the current guidance. 


On 28 June 2019 the Grants Advisory Committee reviewed the proposed changes to the current guidance and recommended the attached revised guidance to the Lead Member for Finance.
